My Pursuit of Happiness and Skinny Jeans

My journey to a smaller jean size

Books Read in 2015

Last year I decided I needed to get back to reading, so I made a goal to read 24 books in 2014.  I am happy to say I reached that goal, and even surpassed it!  By the end of the year I had read 30 books. To see what they were, click here.

I really enjoyed taking the time to read, and I’m determined to keep it going, so I’m making it a goal to read again for 2015.  I’m going to make my goal 30 books and hope that once again I can surpass the target and read even more.

As usual, I will add the titles to this page once I’m finished reading a book, along with the date I finish it.  Books in bold were some of my faves.

    I love this! I have a book on my night stand that I keep making excuses for not reading, and instead watch trash tv. What kinds of books are these? Thriller, romance, mystery? I guess I could google them. im lazy!

      Haha! They are a mix of things. All fairly light and easy to read…if it gets too complicated or “brainy” it’s too much like work..which is what I read to get away from 🙂 Check out my list from last year too…If you haven’t read any rainbow rowell, she’s quirky and fun to read.

    Congratulations on your accomplishment! And there’s still time left in the year to read some more. I am not a fast reader, so I am always impressed by people who can read and absorb the text of so many books. My wife usually shoots for, and hits, 50+ in the summer; I wonder who many she reads in a year?
